Teaching Geoscience and Sustainability
Sustainability in the Geosciences
Sustainability is an interdisciplinary topic and the geosciences can learn from and provide resources to other disciplines. In light of the grand challenges facing our society today, students need to understand not only how the Earth works but how that relates to the issues that surround them. Individuals who understand this relationship are poised to find innovative solutions.
